About Hannover international airport arrivals
Hannover airport is not one of the busiest airports in Germany, but still transports more than 6 million passengers annually. It is located in the middle of the country above the city of Hanover. Many fixed flight routes are offered as well as seasonal flights to holiday destinations with companies such as Corendon, TUI, Eurowings, Turkish Airlines and SunExpress. There are three terminal sections and also three runways. Two of them are for commercial passenger transport and freight transport. The other is considerably smaller.
The airport is located in the Langenhagen part. There the airport was built after the Second World War with an opening in 1952. It replaced an older and smaller other airport near Hanover at a different location. Due to the increase in flights and passengers, capacity had to be added. Twenty years later, two new modern terminals have been put into use. Today, these are Terminal A and Terminal B. A few years later, flights were launched to destinations on the other side of the Atlantic. Because there appeared to be little demand for these routes, these routes were stopped again. The third terminal was opened in the late 1990s. This allowed the airport to continue to grow and handle more passengers. Among other things, 11 gates were added.
